Homework 1 (due Friday, January 12, at 2:00 PM)

You have several options for creating the PDF file to submit to Gradescope:

- You could type your homework solutions in LaTeX and upload the PDF file. Learning LaTeX is certainly not required for the course, but it may be beneficial if you expect to pursue a career that will involve scientific writing. Click here for a LaTeX file that is designed to help you learn how to type homework solutions in LaTeX.
- You could write your homework by hand and produce a PDF using one of the scanners on campus. Click here for instructions on where to find scanners on campus.
- You could write your homework by hand and scan it using an iOS phone or Android phone. Click here for instructions.
- You could submit photos of your homework instead of a PDF file. However, if you do this, please make sure that your photo can be read easily by the grader.
